Hi guys,

Penal Code 626.9 (2) section C states:

(c) Subdivision (b) does not apply to the possession of a firearm
under any of the following circumstances:
"(2) When the firearm is an unloaded pistol, revolver, or other
firearm capable of being concealed on the person and is in a locked
container or within the locked trunk of a motor vehicle.
This section does not prohibit or limit the otherwise lawful
transportation of any other firearm, other than a pistol, revolver,
or other firearm capable of being concealed on the person, in
accordance with state law."

Does it mean someone could be able to bring an unloaded firearm onto a university in a locked container in person? Or does it only refer to the unloaded pistol in the car? Thanks!

That covers handgun transportation in a vehicle.

And go further down to (i) - (i) Notwithstanding Section 12026, any person who brings or
possesses a firearm upon the grounds of a campus of, or
buildings owned or operated for student housing, teaching,
research, or administration by, a public or private university
or college, that are contiguous or are clearly marked
university property, unless it is with the written permission
of the university or college president, his or her designee, or
equivalent university or college authority, shall be punished
by imprisonment in the state prison for one, two, or three
